JESUS PUZZLE: The teacher will write the word JESUS in very large balloon letters and cut them out. Decorate each letter differently from the other letters. Cut each letter into three pieces and spread them around a designated area of the class room. The children will hunt for the letters and put them in the right order to spell JESUS.
FOOTPRINTS TO FOLLOW: Each child can trace their shoes and cut out 2 footprints. Each team can place their footprints in a long path for the other team to follow and see which team gets to their destination first.
NO DOUBTING POSTER: The class can work together to make a poster for today's lesson. One group can paint happy faces on the poster, another group can cut out hand tracings to glue to the poster and a third group can draw and cutout small red hearts to glue onto the cutout hands. A fourth group can paint or color stencil letters for, JESUS IS ALIVE, NO DOUBT! (If class is smaller, each child can do one section).
CRAFT STICK DISCIPLES: Children can be given construction paper to make faces and clothes to glue or tape on their craft sticks to make all the disciples and JESUS to then use those to do a skit for today's lesson.
